GAA-AFL "Bash-up" is back

What do you get when you combine real estate listings with geographic data from Google Maps? A really useful, new and distinct web service that is generally referred to as a mashup.

Similary, take two different sports Gaelic football and Aussie rules, mix them together and voila, a comletely new "sport" that is not so much a mashup, as a bashup. Except, it's no feckin' good to anyone.

The GAA confirmed today that there will be a two-game International Rules Series between the countries in October of this year on October 24th in Perth and October 31st in Melbourne.

Maybe the GAA could invite Fiorentina's calcio players and make it a tri-nations tournament...There's a ball there somewhere, I swear!
